HELP PRE­SERVE FOREN­SIC EV­I­DENCE

Stirling Times - - STREET WATCH - – Se­nior Sergeant Julie Fo­ley

You can help po­lice tackle car break-ins by pre­serv­ing any ev­i­dence, blood or tools, for foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion that has been left be­hind by the thief. If you see blood on your car’s smashed win­dow, or a screw­driver nearby, we will call foren­sic of­fi­cers in some cases to go and as­sess your ve­hi­cle. The same goes for homes which have been bro­ken into. Don’t touch any­thing or get re­pairs done. We’ll come and in­spect the house and the dam­age for foren­sic ev­i­dence. If you have CCTV, down­load it and bring it to the sta­tion. You can also ask your neigh­bours to see if their cam­eras have any footage of the crime. This can be very valu­able for in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
